You know what I think the saddest part about this picture is? Its that if the people kill these gentle giants don't stop the sharks will go extinct. When that happens we are liturally screwed because the ecosystem will be all messed up and eventually lead to the unecesary and avoidable loss of countless other species :(

The bull shark does not just prey on fish. It eats echinoderms, crustaceans, bony and cartilagenous fish including other bull sharks. They are highly aggressive and territorial. Bull sharks are perhaps the most lilely to attack humans. They eat aquatic and terrestrial mammals. The bull shark is not a gentle creature nor is it a vicious killing machine but it is certainly an animal which should be avoided. This is difficult because it is widespreada and prefers shallow waters including fresh water rivers.
